Crane hire company Sarens South Africa has officially launched its largest hydraulic mobile crane, the Demag AC 650, which is also reportedly the largest in the South African market.

Sarens South Africa operations manager Lyle Tapinos says that the 720-t fully hydrau- lic all-terrain crane offers significant bene- fits to customers, as it provides for bigger lifts at less cost. The crane has been used by South African National Roads Agency Limited’s (Sanral’s) road upgrade programme to build the new William Nicol bridge and offramps and has carried out work on plants in Lichtenberg for cement supplier Pretoria Portland Cement.

The company owns a fleet of modern cranes that are serviced and maintained regularly. As part of global entity Sarens and besides having the largest mobile hydraulic crane in its fleet, the company can offer global technology, expertise and high safety standards. Sarens South Africa is able to supply clients with lifting equipment from 1 t to 2 000 t.

It develops customised solutions to suit the needs of each customer and the demands of every project, which include initial surveys and recommendations regarding the availability and suitability of equipment and carriers. The company also provides clients with regular updates and progress reports obtained through hands-on supervision throughout a project.

Sarens South Africa has been involved in a number of large infrastructure projects, including most of the 2010 FIFA World Cup stadiums, Sanral’s road upgrade programmes and viaduct erection for the Gautrain rapid rail project. It has also been involved in the construction of the Medupi power station and initial work for the Kusile power station, and plans to grow in the energy sector, particularly in the petrochemicals sector, in the future.
